Letter to Sasha and Malia Obama from Jenna and Barbara Bush.
I think this is sweet, actually. Mainly because I love imagining the Obama girls enjoying their time in D.C.

3. Patty Davis did one to Chelsea Clinton in the NYT. The Bush twins were really great...
with the Obama girls when they came to scout the White House.

Classy move from the former First Daughters. I enjoyed reading their insight. :)

5. P.S. In a few more years we can hook you up with a guy who does really good fake IDs.

8. And one of you can be in a wet t-shirt contest and do keg stands!
I went to the University of Texas in Austin and remember Jenna's antics well. They were even notorious brats when their father was governor, though I can't blame them.

9. That was really nice...
A sweet, kind gesture. I can't fathom what it must be like for a child to move into the White House; to explore its grand rooms and hallways.

10.  "the entire house was adorned with thistle" ?
Their dad was a prick and their grandmother a prickly old bitch, but shouldn't this be tinsel? Or perhaps the Bushes really do decorate with thistle...

11. That was nice
though I am mean enough to smile at the phrase: "Our Dad read to us nightly." Well, guess he can read My Pet Goat and other kiddie books!

14. That was VERY classy
And perhaps the first glimpse into the rumored humanity behind the horrific policies. A good father? Good. It's important to be good at something in your life.

At any rate, I applaud the effort. Nice move, twins.

18. Very nice letter. I don't blame the Bush girls for their father's hideouness
